Barielle Gentle Breeze Collection swatches, review

Monday, February 2, 2015


Did you know Barielle began its voyage into the nail polish world by creating products to condition the hooves of million-dollar thoroughbred racehorses? So if those owners of those elite and graceful animals trusted the product I know I can too. Actually, Barielle is one of my favorite brands. It's formula is usually spot on. The Gentle Breeze Collection has five gorgeous, rich shades.

The Gentle Breeze Collection for Spring 2015 reflects the soft, gentle and eclectic hues of spring. 



Let's take a look! These swatches are shown with two coats and a top coat.



Heaven Sent is a soft aquamarine blue creme. This light blue with a hint of green tone will be perfect for those warmer weather manis. This is two coats with a top coat.

Feathered nail art using Barielle and a giveaway

Wednesday, August 13, 2014


Today's post features a summer infused skittle mani with feathers. Who knew it could be so much fun? It's vibrant, dimensional and ready to take flight!

Feather nail art

The Barielle Summer Brights collection is perfect for this nail art. Vibrant colors are always a hit for the summer. And as summer is rapidly coming to an end, I had to create something fun and bright.  

To prep my nails for this nail art I used Barielle Extra Gentle Cuticle Minimizer. It works wonders and leaves behind a clean, smooth nail border.

Then I applied a base coat of Barielle Hydrating Ridge Filler. This is my favorite ridge filler. It applies smoothly and doesn't leave behind a white tinge like so many of the others do. And it fills ridges in one easy swipe. 

Feather nail art

I applied Lemondrops (bright yellow), Sweet Addiction (grass green), Cosmic Kiss (hot pink), Designer's Shoe (sky blue), and Pink Flip Flops (soft pink) to my nails. I let them dry and applied a top coat (don't use a quick dry for this step.) Moving rather quickly, I applied the tip of a feather to each nail and pressed down until it adhered to the nail. Then I snipped of the feather with scissors at the tip of the nail. 


Feather nail art

I applied a top coat of Barielle Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender to each nail. I let it dry for about 5 minutes to ensure it was completely hardened and added another coat. You want to make sure the feather is completely coated. After it was completely dry, I used a file and filed off the edges of the feather that were hanging over the edge of the nail. Then I added a bit of top coat to the tip of the nail to seal it completely. Now here's the exciting part! Barielle has provided everything used in this mani for a giveaway. And I am even going to add the feathers! So one lucky reader will win everything needed to recreate this mani!



This giveaway is open to international readers (please make sure you know your countries postal regulations as I am not responsible for it being damaged or stopped in transit.) and entrants must be 18 years of age or older (or have parental permission). The giveaway will end at midnight (mountain daylight saving time) on September 2, 2014.

Tape and holographic polish create gorgeous geometric glam

Wednesday, April 30, 2014


I love holographic nail polish. It is glorious to see in the sunshine, although I haven't seen much of the sun this week. But in the hopes that it would peek its yellow rays out to say "hello," I put on a holo nail polish.

Dance Legend has some of the most amazing holographic polishes out there. I only have a few of them, and I love each and every one of them. For this mani, I wanted something a little beyond just holographic. But not too complicated as I just didn't have the time to invest in nail art. So I created a simple tape mani.

For the base coat I used Barielle Blue Capri. Then I used nail art tape in horizontal and vertical placement. After that, I simply applied Dance Legend Optical Illusion and removed the tape - Instant nail art!

If you love nail art, but don't feel you have the time - try the nail art tape as a template. You will love it!

Barielle Vibrants for Spring 2014 Collection swatches, review

Friday, March 14, 2014


Did you know Barielle got its beginning by creating products to condition the hooves of million-dollar thoroughbred racehorses? So if those horse owners trusted the product I think I can too. Actually, Barielle is one of my favorite brands. It's formula is usually spot on.

This collection definitely meets my expectations. Let's take a look at these pastel beauties.

Designer's Shoe is a gorgeous pastel lilac shade. It applied famously and dried relatively quickly. I love this shade. Usually this type of color doesn't go too well with my skin tone. But this has enough of a blue tint that it works. This is two coats.

Fire Me Up is a stunning reddish orange shade. It's not quite a pastel, but it's definitely fits the bill for Spring! This shade is sure to wash away the Winter doldrums and fire up some Spring in your life. This is two coats.

First Class Ticket is my favorite of the collection. This gorgeous periwinkle blue will get rid of those Winter Blues. This is two coats.

Money Talks is a gorgeous mint green cream polish. It was a bit persnickety to apply though. It seemed a bit thick and it didn't want to self-level. But after applying Seche Vite top coat it looked pretty good. This is three coats.

My City Apartment is a stunning shade of a light slate gray. It's perfect on its own or as a base for nail art. This is two coats.
